Zoo Truth

The truth about San Fran zoo is coming out!

Two in-depth articles by the San Fran Chronicle reveal that zoo staff since the late 1950s have known that the wall was dangerously low, and that there is a history of animal and keeper deaths and injuries.

Of particular problem appears to be the tenure of current Director, Manuel Mollinedo. The newspaper reports a string of complaints about him from past and present employees.

A former worker from when Mollinedo was Director of the Los Angeles zoo said that he 'downplays the value of staff and the welfare of animals'.

Needless to say, readers of the paper commenting online are calling for manslaughter charges to be brought.
